Cheese recipe from tonight's dinner

I made dinner for the grandchildren tonight and created something I think is pretty yummy, plus the recipe enters me in a contest for cheese at Biggest Diabetic Loser.

1 frozen hamburger patty
2 baked potatoes
Shredded mozzarella cheese
Barbeque sauce
salt & pepper

Slice the baked potatoes in half longwise and with a spoon, scoop out the insides and set both the insides and the skins aside. Fry the hamburger in a skillet and when it is done, remove them from the skillet and use the spatula to cut it into chunks. Into the hot skillet with the grease from the burger, add the potato insides and let them fry until they are brown. Place the skins in skillet as well, cut side down and let them get warm. Take out the skins and fill them with the scooped out, fried potatoes. Add some of the hamburger chunks and top with mozzarella cheese and barbeque sauce. Salt and pepper to taste. You could place them under the broiler for about 2 minutes, if you'd like.

They were yummy. The kids loved the "hamburger nuggets" I made from taking frozen hamburger patties and cutting them into six big nugget-sized pieces. The nuggets were dipped in bbq sauce and ketchup. Big hit!

We're babysitting my stepdaughter's children each weeknight this week. It's tiring, but fun.

I took the afternoon off today and walked 10 miles in preparation for the half marathon coming up, so I am really pretty tired. Having a 4-year-old and a 2-year-old in the house is exhausting!

Is it bedtime yet?

You walked 10 miles AND took care of two grandchildren? No wonder you are tired!
